    Lit Moon Theatre's "A Christmas Carol" at Westmont
  Westmont College, 955 La Paz Road, Santa Barbara CA
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
Following a five-year hiatus, the Lit Moon Theatre Company’s version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol returns for three performances this Christmas season. First staged in 2007, “Humbug!” A (Lit Moon) Christmas Carol highlights Dickens’ vivid language and haunting atmospheres, in a story about the Christmas Eve transformation of the flinty, crusty old miser, Ebenezer Scrooge. Played in the company’s visual, image-oriented style, five actors – and several puppets – bring more than 30 characters to life.   ($8 - $18)

    Presidential Leadership and the Price of Politics
  Coral Casino, 1260 Channel Dr, Santa Barbara CA
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
  Bob Woodward 
What can we learn from the leadership of American presidents? Westmont will explore that question in the coming year through the Moral and Ethical Leadership in the American Presidency series, sponsored by the Mosher Center for Moral and Ethical Leadership. “Westmont has long been committed to encouraging conversations that matter,” says President Gayle D. Beebe. “We seek to shape a national dialogue on the critical significance of moral and ethical leadership, inviting eminent historians to share their insights into the leadership of American presidents. We greatly appreciate the generous support of the Mosher Foundation in presenting these events.” The series features four talks by prize-winning historians. Bob Woodward discusses “Presidential Leadership and the Price of Politics” on Friday, Jan. 16, at noon at the Coral Casino. A reporter for The Washington Post since 1971 Woodward has won nearly every American journalism award. The Post received the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for his work with Carl Bernstein on the Watergate scandal and again in 2002 for his reporting of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Woodward has written 16 best-selling books, including the recent “The Price of Politics.”   ($100

The adventurous, genre-defying ensemble Brooklyn Rider returns to perform new works, including a new piece co-commissioned by Arts & Lectures and composed by Wilco’s Glenn Kotche, as part of its brilliantly inventive Brooklyn Rider Almanac project.
